Very good pic Jon, thank you! Also, thanks to you Bubbles. I just ordered a parts manual from Jensales so as to have a good reference and some pics during restoration. I think that last picture is the way mine should be set up. If so, I will need the pipe to the carb and the pipe with the valve in the stack. I know these will be difficult to find. I will keep on researching and looking at other tractors and getting feedback from you guys.

Congrats on the pickup of a great size Oilpull - my favorite - though I'm a little biased. You'll greatly enjoy it. This group has a nearly immeasurable amount of knowledge and insight into helping folks through projects.

Our L (pictured) was in nearly identical condition to yours when we bought it and it needed a whole set of tanks made, which we had done and then then they weren't exactly correct with the right edging. A friend rehabbed them and it meant painting them, and I would have rather left them to rust and age, though it doesn't take too much away. I love shiny stuff too, though the look of ours with Penatrol is about as great as they look IMHO. I had this at our show two weeks ago and it stopped a pile of people dead in their tracks because they couldn't get over the originality aspect of much of it. It's your tractor and you do what you want with it, though I thought I'd give an example of an L largely in it's work clothes. I've got painted stuff and original stuff and the original stuff always attracts a crowd and it doesn't matter that it's oozing oil all over.

Good luck with your project!

Hey, that is a great looking L. I see you don`t have anything hooked up on the stack side of the air cleaner. Do you have all this? Did you have to rebuild anything mechanically? I was wondering what kind of fuel do you run? My friends with the W say they run a mix of gas and kerosene and makes it run good under load. My tanks all look good from what I can see of them, but will find out after taking them off. I did have to buy the starting fuel tank as the one on it is not original. Thanks for your response. You are correct about a great bunch of people who want to help fellow collectors.

Thanks! It turned out better than I had thought it would. It had some of the piping off at the time I took this and what I have may not be correct as it's basically just a pipe with a 90 degree bend and some brackets attached. As far as mechanical and engine work, the sleeves were out and were bored slightly with new pistons put back in, bushings all over the place, a new pinion gear was made, and a pile of other odds and ends done down at Justin Click's shop in Hobart IN. I ran straight gas in it at the last show, though I didn't put it on anything and it wasn't under a load (Rain ruined much of our weekend here), and I may try something different for next year's show.

Just got my Jensales parts list book yesterday. Here is some info about part numbers and what tractors had the air heaters on them. There are two air cleaners listed, #ma1034 and #ma1501. These are both beehive or cone type as the picture indicates, and there is no listing of the other type at all. When looking at the ordering list the #ma1034 refers you to use #ma1501, so they must have discontinued the 1034. The pipe elbow (which I need) is #c5p3171, and the air regulator body, ( pipe with the valve ) is #c5p3391. The air heater body, (cover over exhaust pipe) is #c5p3390 to be used on tractor #3456 to #3949. It also gives one more part # c5p3489 to be used on tractor # 3949 and since. Rumely made the first 1926 with #1607 and the last being built in 1927 with # 4214. Am I right in thinking that mine is not supposed to have an air heater with having a #3175? Mine is not in those numbers.

In the case of the air cleaner that will be a Donaldson XX cleaner.
Hard to find but not impossible.......maybe.......
Some years ago I bought a repop from Romo Machine but it appears he quit making them.......
Too bad, it was nicely made.
The price back in 2006 was $300.

Couldn't hurt to ask him if he could make one for you.

The exhaust elbow in your pics looks like the one I have with the Bennet aircleaner. Maybe yours was switched out at some point in its life?

Thanks Craig for the info, but I have the Donaldson air cleaner that I got from Biewers earlier on, as I thought this is the one it took. Jon mentioned mine had the manifold for a air heater setup so maybe it is supposed to have the Bennett style air cleaner. As he said in his last post, the manifold could have been changed at one time. Thanks Jon! The parts book I have shows no Bennett air cleaner on any of the model L tractors. There were air heaters used but I think not on my #3175. It mentions the air heater body used on tractors #3456 and up, so I am thinking mine just needs the simple air cleaner with stack and cap. If anyone knows of a pipe elbow, part #c5p3171, please let me know. I keep mentioning my serial #, and I hope it is correct as I am going off the tag. I have not checked the casting numbers yet as to match the tag number. I just started it up for a cousin of mine over the weekend and boy that is a sweet sound! They sure do have a sound all there own. Had to throw down a few more rags on the floor to sop up the oil leaks. Hopefully they will be mostly sealed after restoration.

I did look at the numbers stamped in the casting on the front of the tractor and it does match the tag. Also I did find a small patch of olive green paint under some grease on the front crankcase cover. Is this the correct color for this year? It probably is the original paint as I see no other on it. Seems like there were two or three shades of green on Rumelys. I pulled the mag cover off to see what kind it had, and I am not sure. The numbers and letters stamped on it are MC, DU, 24, ED24,VI , and it has 180 with a degree symbol after that. Can anyone tell me? It is going to need the round points cover on it as it is missing. I see some exhaust stacks painted black on the top section. Is this correct? Looking forward to hearing from you all.

That is the correct mag but needs the point cover.

I think I can see part of a serial # stamped next to the crank case cover. That is another place they stamped the number.

Thanks Jon. I will check that number. Thanks to you Bubbles for the mag info. It won`t be long now till tear down time. I told my wife that I would first finish the John Deere L that I am almost done with. I did a total restoration of it. Also have to get my wood supply for the shop as I heat with that.

Thanks Torben. I am still searching and waiting around to see if anything comes up. I will go ahead with the restoration and maybe make some kind of temporary intake pipe so I can run it. If nothing comes up I will have to have one cast, and will keep you in mind. Maybe whoever does it can cast two at the same time, but will have to find one to borrow from someone. My friend with the machine shop told me of someone who has an L close to us here in Ohio who may let me use his pipe. I see some of these tractors with and without a cover over the clutches on the belt pulley. Are all supposed to have a cover? Chris

If the tractor has a "spring loaded" clutch it should have a clutch cover.

Your tractor should have a sheet metal cover.

Thanks for the reply Bubbles. I thought it was supposed to have one. Looks like another part to locate. I know I have seen it on other posts, but who is it who has those brass lines that are easy to bend? I did find a guy that has the points cover and points. It is Mainely Magnetos, and they seem to have quite a few parts for older mags.

Photo Re: Rumely Oil Pull L 15-25 Parts and Advice Wanted

Finally got it moved around in the shop where I need for tear down. I took off the fenders to take to man to have them worked on. I was looking at where my air intake stack brace bolts up on the engine block, and there is some short flat bar on there with a 90 bent on top just under the manifold. The brace I have is a long angle iron piece that I got from Beiwers and cannot go there because the manifold is in the way. Am I right in assuming that this is not the right manifold for the air cleaner system I have? My guess is that the manifold broke at one time and was replaced with another type, and the air cleaner and pipes were left off as it had no intake at all when I got it. Am I going to have to look for the correct manifold or change the whole air cleaner system? I did find a recast intake pipe from a 12-20 I think and can be machined to work on mine. The pics will show the manifold and block. Looking forward to hearing from you all. Chris.
